SPA ‘Getting with the programme’ seminars


In early 2015, Michael Lambert and I were supported by the Social Policy Association to hold three seminars exploring the history, development and operationalisation of the Troubled Families Programme.

Speakers at the seminars included Imogen Tyler, John Welshman, Andrew Sayer, Val Gillies, Nicola Horsley, Rob Macdonald, Hartley Dean, Aniela Wenham, Sue Bond- Taylor, Andrew Wallace, Roger Smith and John Macnicol. All of the presentations from the seminars can be found on the SPA website here

A brief summary of the seminars can be found in the SPA newsletter here

There are also plans afoot to hopefully produce a themed section or special issue of a journal using some of the papers from the seminars.
